Brett Okamoto(ESPN):Not unusual for me to re-watch a fight w/o distractions and see it very different, but live cageside, I had that last one Brunson 30-27!



Looking forward to NYK views of this fight

Here's my two cents for what it's worth --

First I agree the UFC has become a glorified WWF.

No way in hell did Silva win that fight. Total BS!

My other problem is with fighters that will not engage. Guys like Dominique Cruz. Peck and run, peck and run. Is he a good fighter - sure he is. He's a great technical fighter, but he's smart enough, like Floyd Mayweather to avoid engaging. Might as well bring Ben Askren on board. Dana White says one thing yet he contradicts himself. So now we are seeing the product of some of his BS.

I will qualify my next statement with the fact that I don't care for women fighters! I wouldn't pay a nickel to watch women fight. Last night they had the makings for a good female fight. But what happened, HH would not engage. Thus we got what we saw. Now I will pay to watch the newly crowned champion take on Cyborg. Those two will throw down. But then again many felt last nights fight would be a slobber knocker.

i agree with the Knight that Anderson Silva is the best ever, yes better than GSP and Fedor. But he needs to hang it up.

Had an awesome weekend ... the only downfall was the 5 hours wasted at the Barclay Center Saturday night. Def one of the Shittiest UFC's of all time ... and 90% of that arena felt the same way.

Cheated out of 2 fights due to illness and a bad weight cut then 9 of the 10 fights go to the scorecards. Besides Jacare almost ripping off Fat mans Boetsch's arm, there was no threat of anybody getting finished ... None. The Poirier / Miller fight was decent ... All the rest Sucked.

Not in a million years did Spider win that fight (that's coming from me, big time Silva fan). That fight should be replayed over and over on You Porn so everybody can watch Brunson get fucked hard over and over. IMO it was Easily 30-27 Brunson and everybody around us thought the same thing. Obviously the UFC was never going to allow Silva to lose 5 straight if things were left in the hands of the corrupt judges.

And don't even get me started on that 25 minute women's snooze fest title fight. The entire crowd was booing / laughing at the same time. Just an awful fight. Just an awful entire night of fights.

I have burned tons of money in my life but I totally feel cheated after what went on in that octagon last night. Even Dana said last night was pretty bad and that's coming from the owner.

And one other thing ...


Cyborg will KILL de Randamie.

de Randamie already hiding / dodging. She had to go to the hospital after the fight with a hand problem and already said she is def going to be out awhile because of the injury.

I only had a few small dollars for action on Brunson and Cannonier.

Cannonier just flat out sucks when it comes to takedown defense.

I evened those two loses out hitting Main Event going distance and Jacare / Boetsch not going to 2nd round.

It was just a weird night, I have been to many UFC's but never left one seeing sooo many people disappointed / complaing. For a big time UFC event, the prelims were total garbage / UFC Fight Pass caliber fighters. The main reason I went was to finally see Silva fight live and it was a total letdown.

Was really thinking about hitting up UFC 210 in Buffalo in April just because I'm dying to see Rumble vs. Fat Dan, but after last night I'm really second guessing that decision. Also there isn't much to do in Buffalo ... it's not anything like ripping it up in NYC before and after the fight.

Next Sunday night is Fight Night 105 in Halifx. Pretty shitty card but do have some interest in the Hector Lombard / Bigg Rigg Hendricks matchup.

Just more bullshit ...

LOTS of early talk out there saying good possibility Holm gets immediate rematch before Cyborg gets a crack at the belt.

Holm just needs to go away and find another hobby, she peaked vs. a very overrated Rousey and has now lost 3 straight.

Her comment last night at the post fight presser was beyond comical. With tears in her eyes / trying not to cry when asked about getting punched 2 times after the round ended she has the balls to say ...


"I knew I should have just knocked her out"


LOL OK fool ... then what held you back ????

Very true.

A friend of mine who lives in Miami is planning on coming up for a visit soon and she has always wanted to see Niagara Falls. Might possibly have to kill 2 birds with 1 stone that weekend. She has been to UFC fights with me in the past so this could work out nice.

But after looking over the card ... looks extremely weak for a Big event (shocking right? lol)

Outside the main event, Weidman vs. Mousasi might be alright if Weidman decides to show up and Will Brooks vs Charles Oliveira could also be interesting. But I could give a shit about ...

Patrick Cummins vs. Jan Blachowicz
Katlyn Chookagian vs. Irene Aldana
Shane Burgos vs. Charles Rosa


And that's just the main card. Prelims have not been announced yet but if the Main card is that shitty then more than likely the prelims will suck.

I gotta admit the UFC is doing a Horrible job ever since Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta sold the company to William Morris Endeavor.

Way too many shitty fights featuring no name fighters on big cards nowadays.

This says it all ...

Dana White couldn’t stop from being blunt about it. When asked about the highlight of UFC 208, the president answered ...

“the plane ride home.”

Holm does need to retire. I actually knew and followed Holm when she was a boxer and world champion at a higher weight class then this...but she is old

She does not need to destroy her legacy if she has anything in the bank..she is the only true crossover champ and she cut weight to do it...to take this fight was just a money grab...

She really has had an amazing career reaching the top of both even for limited time

Exactly! She had her chance but refused to cut it loose.

As for Cyborg vs GDR, if and when they fight, GDR has pretty much painted herself into a corner with her 'I love to brawl' and the 'I come to fight' talk. If she does brawl with Cyborg, she could be in deep water. if Holm fights Cyborg, I would suggest her dad say a real good prayer for her ugly ass, because she will be unable to run and hide. Cyborg will run her down and put her down and pole ax that ass.

She just won the belt and I am already tired of the "I love to brawl" bullshit.

She had plenty of opportunities last night to open up and let the leather fly and didn't do anything close to it.

I have been a fan of Cyborg ever since she walked onto the scene back in 2005 and lost her 1st pro fight tapping out to a kneebar. The girl is a Monster. She was put on this planet for 3 reasons ... to destroy / hurt people and become the Champ. I can't wait for the day she gets a shot at that UFC 145 belt.

Also, in the past week I have heard nothing but positive reports that she is on the road to being cleared with her "doping" scandal. She took doctors orders / followed them and should be at no fault of any wrongdoing.

Also worth noting ...


Aldo vs. Max Holloway headlines UFC 212 in Rio .......


Really like Max as a fighter ... Hope he brings it but ya never know what Uncle Dana and company has up their sleeve with the Brazilian legend coming off a brutal / embarrassing 13 second KO and now fighting in his own backyard .......

I definitely think Elias Theodorou is worth a look Sunday night.


The Spartan (13-1 ... 4-1 UFC) got off to a great UFC start In 2014 defeating Maximum Fighting Championship vet Sheldon Westcott via TKO due to punches / elbows in the 2nd round at The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale to win the Middleweight tournament. His only career loss was a unanimous decision defeat to Thiago Santos back in December of 2015. He bounced back nicely this past June with an impressive unanimous decision victory vs. a very tough Sam Alvey. Six of Theodorou's 13 wins have come by way of knockout proving that he has good standup and power ... also the guy is a cardio machine so there shouldn't be any threat of him gassing out.

Cezar Ferreira (12-5 ... 7-3 UFC) is 4-3 in his last 7. Those 3 losses in that span have all been 1st round knockouts including a 2 minute ass kicking from Sam Alvey. The 4 wins have come against pretty mediocre competition ... Andrew Craig (3-4 UFC) ... Oluwale Bamgbose (1-2 UFC) ... Anthony Smith (2-1 UFC) and Jack Hermansson (1-1 UFC)


In all honesty I am pretty surprised Theodorou (+105) is the dog in this one ... I would have figured him to be around -125 or so. I think the combination of the nice price along with fighting in Canada sets up a decent play on the Greek model Sunday night.

In all honesty I don't really like any of these underdogs ... but that's just my opinion and as you know I have been known to be wrong on occasion ... lol


I don't really know anything about Reginaldo Vieira or Alemann Zahabi.


Paul Felder and Sara McMann should both pull out wins but both are massive chalk.


Markos has decent power and offensive grappling but it probably won’t matter because she won't be able to stop Esparza from taking her down and dominating her on the ground. IMO Carla should easily handle Randa for the 15minutes pulling out the decision or possible late submission.


Ponzinibbio has established himself as a contender, winning 5 of his last 6 including 3 brutal knockouts. He's got a decided speed and power advantage over Taleb and his takedown defense has improved tremendously, taking away a weapon that Taleb has always relied on inside the cage.


Meerschaert has made the jump from journeyman to legitimate threat, fighting a wide range of opponents ... Janes' biggest accomplishment is beating Keith Berish. There is a slight threat of Meerschaert tapping factoring in he has been submitted 7 times in his 8 career defeats and Janes does have a pretty decent ground game, But imo at the end of the day Gerald's experience and durability should prove to be too much for Ryan.

No problem.


Just an update from this past Saturday's action ... Both Holly Holm and Derek Brunson are appealing their loses with the New York commission.

Brunson has been very outspoken since Silva was a handed a unanimous decision victory over him, with two 29-28 scores and one 30-27. He believes he won, citing striking stats and the wrestling advantage he showed off in the UFC 208 co-main event. UFC president Dana White thought Brunson won as well, though he made it clear that anything can happen if you let it go to the judges. Brunson also dropped a spot in the UFC rankings due to the loss.

It remains to be seen if the commission would consider overturning a decision based solely on what could be viewed as the incompetence of the judges. Holm’s appeal is based on the fact that she was hit after the bell multiple times. But this is MMA, and NYSAC has already done some strange things during the UFC’s short history in New York, so it’s at least possible that Brunson could come out on top here.
